A.H. Belo Corp. announced a series of executive changes last week that included the exit of longtime CFO Michael D. Perry and the promotion of five executives at the Dallas-based media company:
- Michael J. McCarthy, 53, to executive VP from senior corporate VP, general counsel and company secretary;
- James M. Moroney, 41, to executive VP with oversight of all financial, treasury, investor relations, investment banking and board activities, from president of Belo’s Television Group;
- Jack Sander, 57, to president of Belo’s Television, succeeding Moroney, from executive VP of the television group;
- Dunia A. Shive, 37, to CFO, in addition to current responsibilities as senior VP, corporate operations; and
- Marian Spitzberg, 49, to corporate secretary, in addition to current responsibilities as VP/deputy general counsel.
CFO Perry’s leaving after 19 years with the company was attributed to a desire to pursue opportunities with “broad management potential.”
